TDLFAN is "on top of the World" literally.
I had the pleasure of visiting the World's Tallest Building, Taipei 101 in Taipei, Taiwan Republic of China.
This impressive building (as seen on Discovery Channel's Amazing Structures series) is one heck of technological and architectural marvel. On this day, I made the trip to the Observation Deck on the 89th and 91st floors and enjoyed the view of Taipei and some surrouding areas. It was a bit hazy so that created some impediments, but still, It was a most enjoyable time. Also during my visit to the building, a fabulous hand made chinese lanter exhibit was on display and a folkloric dance group from Saipan, Mariana Islands, was performing at the top as well. The Taipei 101 complex also includes an ultra modern and most luxurious shopping mall on the first 6 floors of the building, with anything you always wanted on a mall... Starbucks, McDonalds, Gucci, Hermes, Channel etc etc etc... all housed under a most impressive atrium and multi-tiered complex. Very chic!
Just check out the pics and feel free to ask questions if necesary..
Forgot to mention to pay close attention to the "World records" display held by this building. Quite interesting... for example, the elevators traveling to the top of the building are the World's fastest. The trip from the 5th floor to the observation platform took only 37 seconds, and it was a very smooth ride all the way to the top. Awesome!
